    Lawrence County Schools CNP announces approval for the emergency Meal -to- You Program. 

    Some of our schools in Lawrence County (that are categorized as Rural and have 50% or more students receiving Free/Reduced meals) have qualified for a program called Emergency Meals-To-You (eMTY). This is a demonstration Project by Baylor University and our CNP has just been approved to participate.

    Meals will be mailed directly to the qualifying homes during the month of June. A box will be mailed every 2 weeks that contains 20 meals.

    Parents must enroll May 18-22 to participate in the eMeals -to- You Program. This is a strict enrollment period. We will post the enrollment link and information several days next week.

    The rural schools in Lawrence County that were approved by Baylor University are:

    All students at:
    East Lawrence Elementary School
    Speake School
    Mount Hope School
    Hatton Elementary School
    Hazlewood Elementary School

    Only Free and Reduced eligible students at:
    East Lawrence Middle School
    East Lawrence High School
    R.A. Hubbard High School

    **The Moulton schools did not qualify because USDA labels them “In Town.” They are also identified as "In Town” at www.nces.ed.gov. Hatton High did not qualify because they do not have the minimum 50% Free/Reduced eligible students.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Michelle Chenault by email- mchenault@lawrenceal.org or by phone 256-905-2411
